Greetings,

I'm hoping someone out there might be on the same boat ........

Does anyone know if there's an AV receiver out there that can send the HDMI CEC signal to an Epson Home Cinema 3020 to power it on when the receiver is turned on?

I just got the Yamaha RX-V473, and though they both support HDMI Link .... and the Epson has settings to allow it to get "power on" ... it doesn't look like they are compatible with each other. The receiver doesn't show up under the "device connections" of the projector settings frown.gif

Would I have better luck with a Denon or Pioneer AV receiver?

thanks a ton! :P

The only requirement by any devices out there to be CEC compliant is that it must respond to the 'power off' command. HDMI CEC is a joke, and is why there are good universal remotes out there. HDMI CEC had the potential to be exceptional, but it wasn't implemented well and manufacturers don't tend to publish specs, compatibility, or much else. In fact, due to the erratic nature of HDMI CEC, it is typically far better to simply not use it than to allow it to fail to deliver as expected with inconsistent results.

Need to get that Blu-ray out of your player? Well, turning on the BD player just turned on the receiver and the projector automatically... Great. What a waste.

Just those people who want the best quality. Whether you play back from the disc, or from a 1:1 rip from the disc, there isn't anything that I'm aware of that actually is delivering better quality. Maybe you know of something else?

I'm referring to whatever is 'good enough' to leave you a system which can easily be turned on with the touch of a button every single time with extremely high reliability and very low service requirements. For some that is a Harmony, for others URC, and for some it is Control 4, AMX, or Crestron. Really depends on who you are and what the setup is.

If you have a HA system, why not use the serial port on the projector? That actually works well, is a fully working product, and can power on, power off, switch inputs as necessary, and is extremely reliable.
